Membership

Please acquaint yourself with the Club rules prior to applying for membership, and again when renewing your membership.

WE DO NOT OFFER DAY TICKETS

For just a small fee every year you can enjoy some of the richest fishing in the area.

The Club membership year starts on the 1st of May.  Renewals can be paid from the 1st of February, and no later than the 14th of April to guarantee continued membership.  Failure to do so could result in you being placed on the waiting list.

For a new member request, please fill in the contact form on the website initially, indicating whether you would like to join straight away or at the beginning of our next membership year.  There is no reduced fee when joining part way through the membership year.  You will be placed on our waiting list if we have no capacity now or if you wish to join in May.  We will invite membership from the waiting list from mid-April so that you can apply in time for the start of the next season.  We do, however, limit membership volumes in line with the number and capacities of waters available to fish.

As we do not charge a joining fee, and the yearly subs are very reasonably priced, the club do not offer any concessions and all members over the age of 18 will pay the adult fee.  All juniors will pay the junior fee.

Adult (18+) – £70.00 (2024/25)   Junior (13-17) – £15.00

Proof of age is needed to qualify for junior membership.  In line with EA licence ages, children 12 and under do not need to purchase a junior membership.  They must be accompanied by a responsible adult, with only one rod in use between the adult and child at any time.  A member may purchase a guest ticket (see below) and accompany a junior (13-17) if they wish to introduce them to fishing, and then separate rods can be used.

We require the following information from you when joining:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Contact telephone number (mobile preferred)
  • Email address
  • Car registration number (optional)

If you do not have your own email, please supply the email address of your representative.

Please supply these details when applying for membership, or upon renewal (if changed).  Howard Orton maintains our membership database.  Please keep Howard informed of any changes via Facebook Messenger, or by text to 07843-630663.

  • by Bank transfer (preferred method) to “Jodrell Bank Angling Club”

We recommend that members (or their representative) join our Facebook Group (members only) to keep up to date with urgent news, catch reports, stocking activities and general water developments.

Guest tickets for non-members may only be purchased by a member in advance of fishing by contacting Elaine and arranging to collect them at Brookbank car park.  You must accompany your guest and remain responsible for their compliance with our rules.  Current price is £5.00 for the day.

If you require further information on the club or our waters simply contact us and a committee member will reply as soon as possible.
